  • 1. NAME:____________________ Total project DUE:___________ DATE:____________________ PERIOD:__________________ Genetic Disorder Project Purpose: One of the largest scientific investigations is how we as humans can be healthy and continue to be healthy throughout our lives. The most money in scientific research is spent investigating in the medical field. The human genome project is constantly being refined and we still continue to learn more and more about the field of genetics. This project’s focus is to familiarize one’s self with a genetic disorder, for deeper understanding and tolerance to those who might have this genetic disorder. What is a Genetic Disorder? : Both environmental and genetic factors have roles in the development of any disease. A genetic disorder is a disease caused by abnormalities in an individual’s genetic material (genome). #disorders Elements: • Choose a Genetic Disorder. • Create a bibliography (for the resources and information you looked up) • Number the lines of your project so that they can be easily to reference. For Example, “In line 56 of your paper in appendix A, it says…” • Do not cut and paste from your references. This is plagiarism and points will be deducted. Paraphrase, cite the reference, and add the reference to your bibliography. • Follow the following list of features of genetic disorders to make sure that your project meets all of the requirements that this project must have: a. Explanation of disorder b. Causes. c. Symptoms d. Treatments, Prevention, Cure (or possibility of) e. What a “day in the life…” is like for someone who has the disorder. f. Conclusion: Your opinion counts. • Make sure you have a concluding statement at the end of your report. • Papers should be 2-5 pages long, double spaced, and use font size 12, and Times New Roman font. Research information sources and websites have to be listed on a separate page and do count to the total number of pages • Present a summary of your paper on an 3x5 card to your classmates. Page 1
